About the Image(s)

This month's image was taken last year in the Douro River Valley of Portugal. We stopped at a port winery for a tour and samples. I'm not into port wines so I looked around for something to do with the sample and the result was this shot.

Sony A7iii camera set at iso 320, f /14, 1/80sec 65 mm raw hand held. Post done with Affinity Photo.

Richard - lovely photo and appreciate seeing the before/after to see the impact of your edits. Like the focus on the wine glass with the beautiful valley in the background. However, the backlit background is quite harsh and my eyes want to wander to the left of the glass. Perhaps you could tone down those areas a bit in post.   Posted: 11/08/2023 14:05:00

Thanks Jill, very good suggest. You are quite right, the early afternoon sun was hard light but I could soften it a bit in post.   Posted: 11/09/2023 18:32:44

You did a good job of editing. I like the idea, and there is an image with the same idea by Gaetan Manuel in Group 7 this month.   Posted: 11/11/2023 12:55:03

I agree with Jill. And I might also crop off some from the left side. Well captured.   Posted: 11/11/2023 17:37:29
